I’m thinking of doing either ‘Animation’ or ‘Animation with Illustration’ at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2021 and I was wondering if anyone here did either of those courses at MMU.

The ‘Animation with Illustration’ course is fairly new from what I’ve heard so I can’t find much about it so it would be great to know what it’s like from a student’s perspective.

Specifically, I would like to know what type of animation is done on the course and if it has an in-depth study of it, not like a one-off unit or something. Also, what is student life like? Are the teachers, facilities and the university in general any good?

I currently live in Leicester so I can go to DMU to study Animation but I am able to relocate to Manchester, MMU being the only other uni I can go to that does ‘Illustration with Animation’.

Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hopefully I get in. That would be awesome if we were in the same class too!! ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ Also is it okay to ask if you’ve already uploaded your portfolio or received any interview dates?
